Our work on Education
CIVIC is working with one primary and one high school in each of two wards. Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan (SSA) is the flagship programme of Indian government to achieve universal Elementary Education (UEE) in a time bound manner, as mandated by 86th amendment to the Constitution of India making free and compulsory Education to the Children of 6-14 years age group, a Fundamental Right. Refering to the framework of SSA CIVIC works with the schools and School Development and Monitoring committee (SDMC) by strenthening them to take control of school managment. The Parents meeting platforms are being stregnthened.
